A household name in the world of fashion, Candy Pratts Price also warrants some tech street cred. Vogue’s Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour once dubbed her the “Queen of the Internet” for her early adoption of tech in the fashion industry, including podcasts dubbed “CandyCast,” long before it became mainstream.

Pratts Price was one of the early editors at Style.com, just after the site launched, and was later named Creative Director of Vogue.com. She is currently a contributing editor to the publication. What’s great about her is how she has transitioned her knack for curation—honed while detailing the windows at Bloomingdale’s and crafting editorial for Harper’s Bazaar and Vogue—to the digital world. She’s even won awards for her work in visual design, including the Eugenia Sheppard Award for excellence in journalism from the CFDA.

Candy Pratts Price will bring her expertise as the Master of Ceremonies of the Hackathon Finale and present the winner at the Decoded Fashion Forum on Feb. 14.
